Should have got an Oscar
◘ Gifs. Gifs. Gifs. ◘
the one thing that has stuck with me every day since my English teacher told me it in middle school is:
"When referring to someone, always say who they are before anything else about them, because being a person always comes first"
Instead of saying “the mentally ill man,” say “the man with a mental illness”
Putting someone’s characteristics (especially negative ones) before them is dehumanizing and rude. Don’t do it.

I love when celebrities just give away huge amounts of money to random people because $1,000 can mean so much to somebody who works a minimum wage job.
